Penguin Playmates

Stampin Up Penguin Playmates

It is hard to believe that tomorrow is the last day for the Stampin’ Up!® Sale-a-bration.  I can’t decide which is my favorite product from that catalog that I was able to get for free.  I love the Counting Sheep and Delicate Dahlias stamp sets.  I love the Sheep Dies that coordinate with the Counting Sheep stamp set.  I love the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper that coordinates with the stamp set called Penguin Place and it’s coordinating Penguin Builder Punch that are both in the 2021 July – December Mini Catalog.

To make this card I used the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper.  The background of this card is a piece of this DSP that I adhered to a Just Jade card base.  I cut a 2 5/8″ x 5.5″  piece of Misty Moonlight card stock and layered that on top.  Then I cut a piece of Basic White card stock using a die from the Ornate Layers set.

The Snowman, the Polar Bear and the Penguin that I used on my card are from the other side of that Designer Series Paper.  That is one of my favorite things about Stampin’ Up!® DSP.  There are always two sides with different patterns.  I fussy cut the characters out and glued them to my card.  I am not big on fussy cutting but these were all easy to do since the lines were not complicated.

I cut out three snowflakes using the Stitched Snowflakes dies in Basic White and Misty Moonlight card stock. The sentiment from from the stamp set called Artistically Inked.

Remember, tomorrow is the last day to get free products from the Sale-a-bration catalog with a qualifying order.  There are lots of things to choose from that I am sure you will love as much as I do.

Ornate Thanks Slimline Card

Stampin Up Ornate Thanks

I received this card in the mail from my friend and downline, Char. Char and I have known each other for at least 30 years.  We met when I decided to stay home with my kids after my youngest son, Zachary was born.  She was looking for childcare for her three children so I decided to start watching other kids in my home.  It was actually a perfect idea because all the kids played together.  Char made this card for me after we spent a great day on the lake.

Here is a picture of our time on the boat.  It was such fun!

I love the new slimline cards everyone is making.  I actually made one (which I will show you later) and sent it to Char thanking her for my birthday cake.  She makes the most amazing chocolate zucchini cake.  It is so rich it doesn’t need frosting and is definitely my favorite cake of all time.

Char’s card is 3.75″ x 8.75″. She used the stamp set called Ornate Thanks.  She stamped the sentiment is Pretty Peacock ink and cut it out using the dies called Ornate Labels.  These dies are perfect for making slimline cards.  The Designer Series Paper she used is called Forever Greenery.  It is beautiful paper with beautiful colors.  Char even made a matching envelope for her card.  It was such a nice surprise to get it in the mail!

Thank you, Char!  💙💚💛

Ornate Garden Suite

In the last couple of weeks I have shown you cards I received from a swap with my class members and Downline.  This is the card I made to send to them.  It uses products from the Ornate Garden Suite that will be in the 2020/2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.  This suite contains two stamp sets, two sets of dies, Designer Series Paper, ribbon and embellishments.  It is the suite that is available for everyone to buy now (before the catalog actually comes out).

To make this card, I first stamped the flower from the Ornate Style stamp set using Memento Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the middle of the flower using a Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends and the leaves using a Mint Macaron Blends.  Then I cut it out using a die from the Stitched Rectangles dies set.  I backed that with a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock I had cut out using the Ornate Layers Dies.  These dies are gorgeous and very intricate.  I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Ornate Thanks and cut that out using the Stitched Rectangles.  The Designer Series Paper is called Ornate Garden Specialty Paper.  I added a piece of Mint Macaron 1/4″ Textile Ribbon.  This ribbon is retiring on June 2nd. I decided at the last minute to add the little Basic Adhesive Backed Sequin to the corner.
